VIRAL VIDEO: A video posted to Facebook showing a woman being tased and forcibly removed from a middle school football game in Ohio went viral. The attorney for a woman who was tased this week at a middle school football game after she refused to wear a facemask says the school district involved “misapplied the law, and misapplied it haphazardly and violently.” Alecia Kitts was attending a Logan Middle School game Wednesday as a supporter of Marietta Middle School. She was approached by School Resource Officer Chris Smith and asked to wear a mask. She did not, saying she suffers from asthma. Smith then asked her to leave the stadium, and when Kitts did not, handcuffed her — applying a Taser to her right shoulder area in the process — and escorted her out.
